This is my banter for Wednesday August 21st..

Hello there:: I hope everyone survided Tuesday.. We are now in the middle of the week. “Hump Day”  There is no place to go from here but to the weekend.. I vote for four day weeks, and a long weekend every week.. ‘Is anybody with me on this??’ Our day was hot, and we have a warning for a storm that could hit us on this Tuesday night.. I’ll keep my open for it to happen.. On Wednesday, where I live it is going to be hot and humid.. I know where I’m going to be.. Right here in the house where it’s cool.. I may even hide in the basement.. It’s really cool down there.. I could even sit with all the dead Halloween people I have stored there.. It’s a little creepy, but I don’t mind.. My hubbies sisters came to visit, and would not go to the basement once they seen the people who reside there.. We jokingly said they had to sleep down there.. That didn’t go over well at all.. This gal is going to try and get some shut eye.. You take care, and be safe.. Till later.. Don’t walk in traffic… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Tuesday August 20th..

Hello everyone:: Monday has gone, and we are into Tuesday. Before we know it the weekend will be upon us.. I hope your Monday was prosperous, and a blast for anyone you came in tough with.. My Monday was quite enjoyable even if it rained the majority of the night.. I love how even the brown grass turns to green.. There are a lot of brown lawns out there, and I see them when ever I’m out.. The day started out warm then got cool enough too sit outside, and watch the world go by.. The best way to spend your time.. I find there are so many people who peak our interest.. The differences between people is not limited to size and hieght.. Just sit in the mall and you will see what I mean.. You may be looked at by a watcher like I am.. Well, This gals got to run.. You take care, and be safe.. Till later.. Never stand in the shadows of others.. Stand tall on your own… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Monday August 19th..

Howdy doo everyone:: I hope you are all well, and had a great time with your families over the weekend.. I had a very good time with my family as well.. It rained here Saturday morning and I believe Friday night.. What ever day it was the grass and plants loved the rain.. The grass looks like it shot up over night.. It almost looks like it had never been cut.. I guess that is what the real rain does for plants.. Sunday it poured like crazy for a matter of twenty minutes.. The wind got to blowing really hard, and boom the clouds opened up and dumped rain.. I happened to look out the patio door, only to see a squirrel hanging onto the bird feeder, and sheltering it’s self under the hood of the feeder.. It was quite funny, and I actually got a photo of him hanging on for dear life.. Nature has such humour that it can give up sorrow, or laughter.. ‘I got to get this butt of mine off the couch, and get to work… Till later.. Don’t sit under a tree with birds in it… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Friday August 16th..

Hello friends:: How’s your day been?  Did you get any rain? We did and it is still falling.. The gardens will love the natural rain instead of tap water, with all it’s chemicals.. I don’t know if you can smell or taste all the things that are added to our drinking water.. I have an impossible problem, and can not drink the water straight from the tap.. I can taste metal, and smell chlorine, and even sometimes bleach… I don’t mind using the Brita filter system.. It works pretty good.. This weekend is the BBQ, and I’m stoked… I like seeing everyone together.. Not all us will be there.. But maybe someday that will happen… Well people, this gal has got to run.. Be good to others.. Till later… Tie your shoe laces… 🙂 🙂

This is my banter for Tuesday August 13th..

Hello everyone.. I hope your Monday was great for you and your family.. My day was a hot one that had me hiding in the coolness of the house.. There was no humidity, but man was it hot. The kind of heat that makes you miserable, and cranky.. I had a pretty productive day. Accomplishing all I had set out to do.. I have not figured out what I will do on Tuesday. I know there must be some kind of chore to do.. I rearranged a few things in the house, but I still have a lot more to get rid of.. I’m hoping that your Tuesday is a productive one, and you achieve all things on your list. Tuesday looks like it is going to be another hot one.. Well, I know where I’m going to be, inside.. The weather man has said Saturday will be rainy, but I think it is too early in the week to predict that far ahead… After all the weather never seems to end up the same… Well, I’m on the run.. Till later.. Keep smiling… 🙂 🙂

Long weekend..

This is my banter for August 6th…

Hello everyone.. I trust all of you had a great fun filled long weekend. The weather in this corner of the universe was quite hot during the day, and cool in the evenings. Cooler temps at night always make sleeping much nicer. The heat tends to keep all of us night owls up for most of the night. I have somewhat of a hard time sleeping, as I tend to think too much, and walk a million miles, brought on by restless leg crap. One way or the other I fall to sleep in the wee hours of the morning.. While I was sick and off for the last week, I had no problem sleeping for the first few days. I guess, being sick will cause that. I’m feeling some what better, but the head aches keep returning. I will not go to the doctor, as the majority of them are quacks. I have learned how to put the pain at bay, but it’s usually not far away…. I appreciate your kindness, and your patience.. Till later… Keep the right side up… 🙂 🙂

Off for the week…

sicky - Copy.pngDown for the count.. I’m out of commission.

http://www.marionbell.com/off-for-the-week

Hello everyone… I will be off for the rest of this week. Due to whatever I have caught. I sleep all day and night. My head hurts and every part of my body is so sore. 😦 I have no energy. I will be resting, and fighting, whatever this could be. My goal is to be back on Monday with a new story… 🙂

Our weather has been hot with high humidity, and thunder storms. The weather man has predicted that this heat will last well into next week. If it is hot where you may live, take care of yourself. Your family, your pets, younger children, and seniors. Help those who can not help themselves. And for goodness sake, drink plenty of water… Till later… Hydrate… 🙂

Visiting the garden (7)

This is my next part of my story for Tuesday July 23rd.

Hello everyone. Tuesday is here and the end of the week is now one day closer. I hope your Monday was everything you planned. My Monday was very pleasant. The weather was nice. It was the kind of day a person would like to be outside all day. I had the chance to weed the garden, where my melons are growing. The soil was damp form a small down pour. That made it very easy to pull the weeds. I like the soil to be wet before I even do the weeding. I’m getting older and my balance doesn’t seem to be quite that well. I nearly landed head over heels into the Lilies. I can be such a hazard sometimes… I mean well… I got the weeding done, and the garden looks so much better.. Take care of yourself and others… Till later.. Be safe… 🙂 :0

This is my first part of my story for July 15th.

Hi: You wonderful people.. How was your weekend? Ours was smashing. I wished it had rained a little more than it did on Saturday. It rained not even enough to dampen the ground. We usually water from the rain barrel, but that has dried up. Come on rain. By the time it gets here the grass will look a bit brown. Fear not as we do have the water in the doggie pool to use next. Our gardens are all a blaze with colors of orange, red, purple, white, yellow, pink and green. It looks beautiful.. All of the pictures in this story are the ones I have taken.. I hope you enjoy them… This girl is way behind with my story so I best get moving.. Be safe… Till later.. Keep the right side up… 🙂 🙂

Rain (8)

This is my next edition to my story for July 11th…

Hello everyone. Wednesday was really hot here in my corner of the world. I hope that all of you had somewhere safe, and out of the heat to hide out in. I stayed inside most of the day, and as the sun was going down I ventured outside to sit. I hope those that work in factories, plants, or whatever you may call them. I hope they have ample air conditioning. The work and safety board, I believe has set a temperature that is the max it has to be set at in most places. The temperature they have chosen for factories is way too low to help beat the heat. Sure there are fans used to blow the hot air around, which I believe that is futile.. My son works in a place that only has air conditioning in the lunchroom. WOW!! He said where he works it was 42 degrees Celsius. That should be against the law.. The company should be fine by the law for not providing a safe temperature to work in… I recall a man that died in a bakery a few years back and the temperature there was 44 degrees Celsius. He Died in that heat.. I hope all of you are keeping cool and drinking lots of water.. If you feel dizzy, or faint get help right away… Till tomorrow… Be safe… 🙂 🙂
